PowerOre Inc (CVE:PORE) announced Thursday that it will change its name to QC Copper and Gold Inc with a new trading symbol of "QCCU" on the TSX Venture Exchange effective September 28.
"There are no other fundamental changes to our business except for a new name and a refocused message and brand,” said CEO Stephen Stewart in a statement.
“We felt the name QC Copper and Gold better reflects the evolution of our company. QC represents our focus within Quebec, while Copper & Gold are the commodities which are most prevalent within our Opemiska Project but also the Chibougamau district at large.”
The Toronto-based company has invited shareholders to view its brand new website when the name-change is official.
It operates the flagship Opemiska copper project in Quebec within the Chibougamau region. The project covers 12,782 hectares as well as past-producing Springer, Perry, Robitaille and Cooke mines which were owned and operated by Falconbridge.
